A great album from the greatest band you

As usual, it takes too long for great bands from the UK to be heard over here. The lack of any good radio stations in this country is appalling, and satellite radio tries but ultimately fails to fill any gaps. Buy this album, and get their debut, you won't be disappointed.

Never new who these guys were till today.... this album is awesome a must have for rock music lovers...
